Health Tip: Help Keep Teen Drivers Safe

(HealthDay News) -- Parents of new drivers can breathe a bit easier by setting safety rules for their teens.

  • Limit your teen's driving time after dark; set a rule of no driving after 10 p.m.

  • Don't allow your teen to drive with a passenger under age 18 for the first year.

  • Don't allow your teen to use a cell phone when driving.

  • Don't allow your child to drink any amount of alcohol and drive.

  • Require that your teen wear a safety belt while driving.
